FCDO officials are in close contact with humanitarian delivery partners in Myanmar and on the Thai border to understand and respond to emerging need. Since the military coup, the UK Government has provided over £5 million additional funding for the humanitarian response. This includes £600,000 to partners to support displacement within Myanmar and support those fleeing into Thailand.
